James’ Crossing

James’ Crossing


James’ Crossing is a late eighteenth century nostalgic tale of one man’s life adventure, from his first steps onto the new world to his various crossings through life and land as one of America’s early pioneers. James Sterling, a Scotsman forced into service to the English Navy, jumps ship and dares to pursue whatever comes his way in the deep south of a newly formed United States. Written in the genre of historical fiction, the story is loosely based on the life of an ancestor of the author, Dr. Frances Sterling Ellis, who at the time of publishing is 93 years old. Remarkably, the author is only three generations removed from the title character himself. Fleeing the English, and having an idea what would become of him as an unwilling British soldier, Sterling risks life and limb to escape his captors by jumping overboard at his first glimpse of land in the new world. During his crossing in the frigid waters of the ocean from the ship to his new life, Sterling realizes that surviving in this strange new wilderness will not be easy. He would have to adapt quickly to dangers he could never have imagined back in Scotland. Sterling regains consciousness on a deeply forested shore, hungry, thirsty, and exhausted. He finds himself surrounded by dark-skinned, strangely dressed men he had only heard of when he visited the pub back at home. He manages to befriend the natives of this curious new existence, learning not only survival skills, but new trades he would never have thought himself pursuing. The men he meets in this new place are as sturdy and able as the best he had known in his childhood. Sterling finds himself crossing again into one new existence after the other. Life is anything but stagnant and predictable here. Almost as hard to navigate as the cruelness of struggling to find food and shelter is the empty loneliness of having no one to share in his hardships, and the realization that he will never know the comfort of his beloved Scotland again. Eventually, Sterli

Barack Obama Advises His 2009 Self In Hilarious Jimmy Fallon Clip

If you had the chance, what advice would you give to your younger self?

Jimmy Fallon has hilariously imagined what the President Barack Obama of today would say to himself when he first entered the White House in 2009.

And POTUS’ biggest tip? Well, apparently it’s all about the hand sanitizer.

With the election so close, President Obama’s time in office is winding down,” Fallon said on “The Tonight Show” on Friday.

“Of course, Obama has changed a lot during his Presidency,” the comedian added, before playing the amusing spliced and diced interview between the “duo.”

Check out the fun in the clip above.

My Stepmom Died And That’s Not Okay

I’ve been having some health problems.

In order to resolve them, I did what any good adult would do: I went to the doctor. It turns out, I’m stressed. I’m stressed in the kind of way that makes your eye twitch for no apparent reason and makes you cry when you drop your fork on the ground (it had one last bite of broccoli on it, okay?).

My doctor asked me about my life and what I have experienced in the last year. I droned on about my engagement (yay!), moving to a new city, planning a wedding, financial troubles, health problems, and the passing of my stepmother.

“You said your mother-in-law died?”

“No, my stepmom.”

“Oh. I was about to say…that is awful! Not that losing your stepmother isn’t awful, but…”

My stepmom passed away seven months ago. This is not the first time I have experienced a less-than-sympathetic reaction. This is not the first time I have had to stifle my tears and reciprocate a stranger’s words with a forced smile. Our society has an innate bias towards the word stepmother.

I blame Cinderella. Thanks, Disney.

I have to be honest here: we bickered a lot. She was stubborn. I was stubborn. We fought, but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t love her. It doesn’t mean that it hurt any less when my father called me on that otherwise beautiful Thursday morning and told me she was gone. It doesn’t mean that I didn’t have to dig deeper than I ever thought possible, to find strength I didn’t know I had, to organize a funeral and finalize all of the details so my dad didn’t have to.

I haven’t fully mourned her loss yet. I don’t know if I have it in me to. She has been in my life since I was a tiny human running around with my blanket and sucking my thumb. With my wedding less than two months away, it’s finally starting to hit me that she wont be present. There are certain things that have always meant more to me when she would say them. Hearing her tell me that I’m beautiful has always been one of them. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because you expect your biological parents to tell you you’re beautiful. Maybe it means something different when it comes from a “step.” Knowing that I wont hear those words from her on that day stings. It stings the way a stranger’s words sting when they assume I’m fine because I only lost a stepparent. I was only her stepdaughter.

The loss of a stepparent is confusing. Sometimes I feel guilty. Sometimes I feel angry. Sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t be allowed to feel sad because she wasn’t actually my mom. Sometimes I feel like I’m betraying my actual mom by feeling sad.

And, what may be the worst of all feelings, sometimes I feel like I don’t get to feel sad because at times we simply didn’t get along.

I know I’m not the only one who has experienced (or is experiencing) something similar. I know I’m not the only stepchild who has experienced this kind of a loss. I want to change the narrative. I want people to understand the complex range of emotions that can accompany the death of a stepparent when both biological parents are still very active in a child’s (or adult’s) life.

I am blessed. I have an amazing mom and I have a phenomenal dad. I also have a kick-ass stepfather whom I love dearly. Just because I have all of these things, that doesn’t mean that my stepmother’s death should be diluted. I am not deserving of less time to grieve or less time to process what happened simply because my bio parents are amazing.

What I am deserving of is a little bit of compassion.

It has been seven months.

And I think I have finally started to grieve.

This post is part of Common Grief, a Healthy Living editorial initiative. Grief is an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t make navigating it any easier. The deep sorrow that accompanies the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage or even moving far away from home, is real. But while grief is universal, we all grieve differently. So we started Common Grief to help learn from each other. Let’s talk about living with loss. If you have a story you’d like to share, email us at strongertogether@huffingtonpost.com.

‘Love Hormone’ Oxytocin May Enhance Feelings Of Spirituality

The same hormone that helps mothers bond with their newborns may also enhance feelings of spirituality, a new study suggests.

It’s been called the “love hormone” and the “cuddle chemical,” but doctors and scientists know it as oxytocin, a hormone secreted by the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland during times of love and bonding.

A recent study spearheaded by Duke University social psychologist Patty Van Cappellen found that participants who received doses of oxytocin reported a greater sense of spirituality than those who received a placebo.

“Oxytocin appears to be part of the way our bodies support spiritual beliefs,” Van Cappellen said in a statement.

For research purposes, the study defined spirituality as a sense of connection to a higher power or to the world that gives meaning to people’s lives.

Eighty-three men between the ages of 35 to 64 participated in the study. Each participant received either a dose of oxytocin or a placebo, administered through a nasal spray.

Researchers found that those who received oxytocin were more likely to report feeling that spirituality was important in their lives and that life has meaning and purpose. They were also more likely to give higher ratings to statements like, “All life is interconnected” and “There is a higher plane of consciousness or spirituality that binds all people.”

Participants also listened to a guided meditation, after which those who received oxytocin reported experiencing more positive emotions like awe, gratitude, hope, inspiration, interest, love and serenity than those who received a placebo.

The study’s results held true regardless of whether the participant reported belonging to an organized religion or not, and they remained consistent a week after the hormone and placebo were administered.

Van Cappellen noted that the results of the study could only be applied to men given that the research subjects were all males. Oxytocin produces slightly different results in men and women, she said, and thus further studies should investigate the hormone’s role on women’s spirituality.

Even among men, the effect might not be uniform. The study also showed that oxytocin has a stronger spiritual effect on people with a particular variant of the CD38 gene, which regulates the release of oxytocin from hypothalamic neurons in the brain.

“Spirituality is complex and affected by many factors,” Van Cappellen said. “However, oxytocin does seem to affect how we perceive the world and what we believe.”

But Van Cappellen isn’t alone in her findings. Previous studies have shown oxytocin to have a profound impact on spirituality, as well as generosity, altruism, and empathy. Oxytocin has also been shown to play a role in experiences of spiritual transformation.

But it has a dark side, too.

A 2010 study of Dutch males out of the University of Amsterdam found that male subjects who received a dose of oxytocin were more likely to express ethnocentric prejudice and xenophobia than those who received a placebo.

Luckily, spirituality isn’t bound by hormones alone. It’s how we choose to define our spirituality ― whether as a connection to all creation on our global home or loyalty only to those who look, act and believe as we do ― that makes all the difference.

Powerful New Clinton Ad Nails The Impact Of Trump’s Vile Behavior

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is here to show you what a Donald Trump presidency would feel like for young women.

The Democratic nominee’s latest ad, titled “Mirrors,” shows girls of varying ages and backgrounds looking at their reflections as they hear multiple comments from Trump degrading women.

“Donald Trump has spent his campaign, and career, demeaning and insulting women, which is just one of the reasons a majority of American women do not think Trump respects women,” Clinton’s campaign said in a statement.

The spot ends with a sobering question: “Is this the president we want for our daughters?”

Watch the full ad in the video above.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Jew Am I?

2016-09-22-1474519476-6095897-ScreenShot20160921at9.44.03PM.png

Despite my unpronounceable surname, formidable Dukakis-level brow line and decidedly Jewtastic seasonal allergies, I’ve always considered myself a regular, average American. I’ve lived in America for all 50 of my 50 years, if we count Los Angeles as part of America. And some people do. On Friday nights, I solve Blue Bloods murders right alongside Tom Selleck’s mustache. On Saturday mornings, I’ll watch any college football game you place in front of me, even the traditional battle between the Devry Institute and Clown College. And on the 4th of July, I not only root for Joey Chestnutt in the Hot Dog Eating contest, but I’ll often eat along with him. You know, for moral support. I like my sitcoms with three cameras and my omelettes with three cheeses. I cried at Argo, Sully, Rudy and Miracle. I complain about traffic and Mondays and my back and gridlock in Washington. See? Regular. Average. American.

And then there are occasional days, when I still feel like a guest, trying to “pass”. But hey, what are you gonna do?

Not long ago, I was at the dentist when their hygienist asked if I was Persian. I answered “No, but that’s funny I do get that a lot. My grandparents were Sephardic. From Turkey.” Apparently, I had given the wrong answer. Apparently, I had given the most grievous answer known to man. Turns out my hygienist wasn’t Persian, but Armenian. And she spent the next ten minutes holding me a little too responsible for the Armenian Genocide, while never once removing her finger from my mouth. “I guess maybe there’s such a thing as a good Turk” she offered with all the resolute conviction of someone reading a ransom note with an off-camera Glock pointed at her head. She then made repeated references to “your people.” My grandparents moved here a hundred years ago. My people are from Encino. As I’ve been known to say, the only things they committed genocide against are pound cake and my self-esteem.

I can’t say I grew up in a super Jewish home. We were Reform. So reform that our temple had a swimming pool, hence it’s common appellation as the “shul with a pool.” I went to Nursery and Hebrew School there and had my bar mitzvah there, but we were mostly High Holiday kind of Jews. And even then, those services were frequently held in a Presbyterian Church. I did mention this was LA, didn’t I?

The other thing that muddled my Jewish identity was the fact that I was half-Sephardic (from Turkey) and half-Ashkenazi (from Poland and Austria). I always thought of my parents as just two Valley Jews. Their nearly matching tennis gear didn’t belie some cultural chasm to my ten year-old eye. But apparently, their union had been the Judeo equivalent of an inter-marriage. I never really considered that there was much difference between my grandparents. But looking back, one side, the Bel Air side, were close friends with Richard Nixon. On the other side, the Fairfax side, I had a grandmother so old country that she didn’t drive, pronounced Seattle as “Seatt-Lee” and wouldn’t buy me root beer because a kid shouldn’t drink alcohol. And a grandfather who, I swear, had at least 8 brothers named “Victor.”

I went to a public elementary school that was so Jewish, I didn’t even realize anyone there was Jewish. I just thought all guys were as bad as me at contact sports. And all girls had frizzy hair and topped out at 5’2.

My first real understanding that not everyone celebrated Shavuot, came when I entered my Episcopalian middle school. Some of the clues included boys with blond hair, Topsiders, restricted counry clubs, tee times and a group called the Sons of Hitler that drew swastikas on our lockers. I don’t believe they received course credit for their hard work. But they didn’t receive suspensions either. This was back in the day, when “kike” was tossed around as casually and without consequence as “fag.” And if you happened to be a sensitive Jew, you frequently received the daily double.

I always felt I was a guest at someone else’s school. But by the end of my six years, I started to have fun with it. I was tasked with doing the introductions at our annual debate banquet, where I shared the dais with our school priest and English headmaster. Neither looked particularly overjoyed when I began my comments with “seated on the bima tonight” and then introduced each member of the debate team by their synagogue affiliation. Except for the one Korean guy every debate team had. He, I said, was here representing Fromin’s Delicatessen.

2016-09-22-1474519803-4968074-ScreenShot20160921at9.49.22PM.png

In college in the Northeast, I definitely went through a phase where I did everything I could to pass. Not just as Gentile, but as Mayflower, old money Gentile. I had the Bean Bluchers and the Norwegian fisherman’s sweater and the shiksa girlfriend from Miss Porter’s. I played touch football with fraternity brothers overlooking the water in Newport while wearing an Oxford shirt. But this was always an ill-fitting costume. As they say, you can’t hide the hook. That’s my nose. That’s what the hook is referring to.
I even once tried dying my hair blond, using a homemade brew of lemon juice, Sun-In and peroxide. Instead of blond, I spent a summer with a bright orange mane looking like the evil spawn of Danny Bonaduce, Carrot Top and Bozo the Clown.

In reality, it’s hard to pass as a Jamestown colonist or a laconic Wyoming sheriff with the last name “Behar.” My wife and I used to joke that if our kids ever wanted to run for the Senate, they could drop the “Behar” and run as “Samantha Robins” or “Jack Andrews.” The latter could also save the State Department from an impending terrorist attack in a Michael Bay movie. Then again, this now feels like a concern from a bygone era. Things have changed so quickly in this country that no name feels more quintessentially American than “Barack Hussein Obama.”

As an adult, I’ve embraced my Jewishness if not a deep religiosity. Both my kids attend Jewish day school, yet I’ve never been to Israel. “But who’s watching my trees” I ask every time to repeated non-laughter. I call 1000 Island , “Russian dressing” and still see Woody Allen movies mostly out of cultural obligation. I know the V’ahavta by heart (or off-book as I call it). But then again, I still also know the Lord’s Prayer–the gift of Tuesday Episcopal chapel that keeps on giving.

We consider ourselves a typical American family. Our last big trip was to Charleston. Before that, we went to Austin. Super American, right? But then, after a week of eating our way through Texas and still in a brisket coma, I was pulled out of line at the Austin airport for questioning. For no discernible reason, beyond my swarthy complexion and swarthy outlook.

It’s possible I’m getting more Jewish as I age. Or the corollary, all old people seem Jewish. Last week, I smuggled a baggy of Trader Joe’s lox into my local bagel store so I wouldn’t have to pay full retail. When did I become everyone’s grandmother?

So what is the point of all this identity navel-gazing. Two thoughts come to mind. The first is about the Jewish-American experience. And how not everyone’s is the same. We’ve grown accustomed to seeing 20th century Jewry through the same herring-tinted filter. It’s always Ashknazi. It always runs through Brooklyn. And it always seems to be narrated by the same talking heads. We get it, Larry King liked egg creams, stickball and sneaking into Ebbets Field. But my experience has just as many bumuelas and biscochos as tongue sandwiches on rye. And my experience has already been supplanted by the new Jewish immigrant stories from Iran, South Africa, Russia and Israel.

My second observation is how I/we fit into the overall tapestry of American life. Every immigrant in every group always faces the give and take of full assimilation versus holding on to precious customs. There are days when I’m well aware that I am a Jew in a non-Jewish society. Try spending a day at Disneyland. (It’s also helpful if you want to feel anorexic). But on most days, I just blend in and don’t think about it–a proposition I’m well aware not all groups get to achieve with equal ease. But as I write this final paragraph in the Northridge Starbucks, the only non-Asian or Latino in the room, I see that we all just want to be thought of as American.

This Teen Is Almost 8 Feet Tall — And Still Growing

At 7 feet 8 inches, Broc Brown definitely sticks out in a crowd, and he’s only going to get bigger.

Brown’s family knew something was up at a young age: He was 5-foot-2 in kindergarten, according to his mother, Darci Elliot.

“When he got into middle school he was around 6 feet tall, and by high school he was 7 feet tall,” Elliot told Barcroft TV. “It’s a genetic disorder and there’s nothing that can stop him from growing – I don’t know if he will ever stop.”

Brown, 19, grows an astounding six inches a year because of a rare genetic disorder called Sotos syndrome, or cerebral gigantism. The condition reportedly affects 1 in 14,000 newborns, but the National Institutes of Health says the number may be closer to 1 in 5,000, since not everyone who has it is properly diagnosed.

Kids with the syndrome tend to grow quickly in younger years and have unusually large heads, but their adult height is often in the normal range. That makes Brown a rarity among rarities.

Other symptoms include attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and an explosive temper.

Brown has both, his mother said.

“When he gets mad, he’s mad. It wouldn’t take him two seconds to pop a hole in the wall ― it could be very dangerous if he wasn’t on medication and able to be calmed,” Elliot told Barcroft TV. “But overall, he is a big softie, his heart is as big as his body.”

Brown is in constant pain because of other issues, including curvature of the spine and narrowing of the spinal cord. He was born with only one kidney, which means he can’t take painkillers.

“It kind of feels like a big tennis racket has gone through my back,” he told Barcroft.

Dr. John Pappas, director of NYU Clinical Genetic Services and associate professor of pediatrics at NYU Langone Medical Center, said there is no cure for Sotos syndrome and treatments address only the symptoms, not the cause.

“We don’t have a specific kind of medication that can control the overgrowth of protein,” Pappas told HuffPost.

Pappas, who hasn’t treated Brown, said factors beyond Sotos syndrome may be causing Brown’s non-stop growth.

The teen’s trajectory has been financially challenging for his family.

“There’s a lot of things that are hard, like finding shoes for him, finding clothes,” Elliot told local station WILX-TV in 2013. Nike helped by donating a pair of size 24 shoes.

Brown’s size has helped him reach a certain height of fame.

Previously, he held the Guinness World Record for tallest male under the age of 18. He outgrew that honor when he reached legal age. Kevin Bradford of Doral, Florida, who stands 7-feet-1, now holds that honor.

But if Brown continues to grow, he could soon be looking down at 8-foot-3 Sultan Kösen, the current owner of the tallest living person honor. Kösen stopped growing in 2012 at the tender age of 29.

Brown doesn’t seem concerned about being the world’s tallest man. He’d be happy with a normal, comfortable existence.

“I hopefully want to work for a sporting goods store or something like that, a cashier or something,” he said. “I just want to have my own job.”

EMP Worst Case Scenario

EMP Worst Case Scenario


Charlie Haskell is burning up a Texas back road in his old Ford F-150 pickup truck, headed home after a trip into town after much needed, last minute supplies for his long time project for which is nearly complete; a one thousand square foot, fully contained, underground backyard bunker; complete with hot water, a working bathroom and its own power source. Mr. Haskell is what you’d call a doomsday prepper; a guy who believes that the earth and the people on it are doomed to succumb to some unpredictable outside forces like an alien invasion or an E.M.P (electromagnetic-pulse). His fears have all but taken over his simple Christian life, and led him to what has turned into a seemingly unhealthy addiction with prepping… (prep ping) preparing for the worst case scenario over the past five years. All that is left in finishing up the underground bunker is to unload the pickup truck which is packed with dried foods, first aid supplies, batteries, and anything else on his enormous shopping list that would deem useful in an unimaginable event. I can’t leave out the ammunition, accessories and the weaponry either. Charlie comes from a long line of gun lovers, so he’s managed to stockpile many rifles and pistols over his lifetime along with the skills to use them. He’s even trained his only son Kyle to be a marksman of sorts as well. Heck! Kyle could shoot the eyeball out of a squirrel at 100 yards with a decent rifle and scope… and the boy fairs pretty well with a bow and arrow too! Charlie’s wife Mary thinks he’s about as crazy as they come. She doesn’t really buy into the whole “doomsday scenario”, and relies heavily on her faith in God to get her through this life here on mother earth. She goes along with Charlie’s crazy antics only to keep from arguing with him about what she considers an unhealthy obsession with his devotion and desire of being prepared for anything, regardless of the likelihood or unlikelihood of whether or not it could even come to pass in the first plac

‘West Wing’ Cast Reunites To Campaign For Hillary Clinton In Ohio

The cast of “West Wing” is reuniting. Sort-of.

Several stars of the hit TV show will hit the ground running with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton this weekend, traveling to multiple campaign stops in the Buckeye State. 

Members of the “West Wing” cast, including Allison Janney (C.J. Cregg), Bradley Whitford (Josh Lyman), Richard Schiff (Toby Ziegler), Dulé Hill (Charlie Young), Mary McCormack (Kate Harper) and Joshua Malina (Will Bailey) will join forces at six different locations on Saturday and Sunday.

The actors will encourage Ohio residents in Mahoning Valley, Sandusky, Toledo, Cleveland, Dayton and Columbus to register to vote in the battleground state.

Martin Sheen, who played President Josiah Bartlet, won’t be there, but he’s already endorsed Clinton. And he’s dismissed her Republican rival Donald Trump as an “empty-headed moron.” The president has spoken.

Why Your Environment Is Working Against You—And How To Fix It

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

Did you know that the way we dress, our facial expressions, our posture, and the tone of our voice make up 93 percent of what we communicate to others?  Research pioneered by Dr. Albert Mehrabian shows that what we communicate non-verbally can be highly impactful. We are hardwired to listen to our senses without conscious thought, and this ability helps protect us from danger and saves us time making endless decisions throughout the day.   

If we are so influenced by our senses, what else is subconsciously triggering our everyday decisions?

Lately, I’ve been trying to pay more attention to “nudges” in the built environment around us. The built environment includes the size and shape of our roads, parks, and buildings: these all drive our behavior. Specifically, I’ve been in search of ways the built environment can affect decisions we make about our health. What we see, hear, smell, taste, and feel impacts our actions—and emerging research in urban planning, occupational health, and behavioral science validates this. Here are just a few of the many ways to leverage the built environment to improve health outcomes:

Nudges to encourage movement

Building location and access to public amenities can impact how much we move. For example, research shows that proximity to parks and other recreational facilities is consistently associated with higher levels of physical activity and healthier weight status among youth and adults. The same goes for proximity to public transit—there is a link between access to public transportation and physical activity since transit use typically involves walking to a bus or subway stop. In one study, train commuters walked an average of 30 percent more steps per day and were four times more likely to walk 10,000 steps per day than car commuters.

Several studies show that simply letting people know the health benefits of taking the stairs and showing their location (like putting a sign in the elevator lobby or using stair banners, like these) increases stair usage by 54 percent. Taking this a bit further, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a “StairWELL to Better Health”campaign in its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. They use music, art, an upgraded appearance, and motivational signage to nudge employees to use the stairs more often. (Check out their downloadable signs, and see “before” and “after” images of their stairwells.)

Nudges to encourage healthy eating habits

You may not have heard the term “choice architecture,” but you experience its impact every time you stand next to the candy display at a checkout counter. Choice architecture refers to the different ways in which choices can be presented to consumers and the impact of that presentation on consumer decision making.

For example, the number of choices presented, the manner in which attributes are described, and the presence of a “default” can all influence consumer choice. Many companies are using this strategy by reducing the number of unhealthy foods available in the workplace or by making them harder to find.  ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Brian Wansink, director of Cornell University’s Food and Brand Lab and author of Mindless Eating, suggests a number of ways our eating behavior is significantly impacted by the way food is presented to us. For example, in some of his studies, people were 44 percent less likely to snack in kitchens that were tidy versus kitchen environments that were messy.

Keeping the kitchen clean is more than just a sanitation issue—it can affect how much we eat. In another study, Wansink found that people tend to eat less on plates that are 9-10 inches in diameter. People piled up food on larger plates, but felt “deprived” and went for a second helping when eating on smaller plates (around 6 inches in diameter). His other studies show that people are likely to serve themselves 20 percent less food on plates with “contrasting colors” to the food they are eating, e.g., white pasta on a red or blue plate. White breads and pastas on white plates? That is a recipe for “carb-loading”!

Nudges to reduce stress and improve well-being

We have a strong desire to be in and among nature. It’s only natural: for most of human history we spent all our time outdoors. This preference, often referred to biophilia, was introduced and popularized by E.O. Wilson, known as the “father of biodiversity.” Wilson suggests that there is an instinctive bond between human beings and other living systems.

In Biophilic Design: Theory, Science and Practice, authors Stephen R. Kellert, Judith Heerwagen, and Martin Mador describe the importance of nature for human productivity:

“Nature is rife with sensory richness and variety in patterns, textures, light, and colors. All organisms respond with genetically programmed reflexes to the diurnal and seasonal patterns of sunlight and climate.”

Interestingly, biophilia-based design can be manifested in many ways. The most obvious way is to incorporate real plants, water, and natural views into buildings. Another way is to create “natural analogues” or use materials and patterns that evoke nature, such as artwork, ornamentation, biomorphic forms, or the use of natural materials. A third way to use biophilia is through configuration of space, by organizing interior environments or man-made outdoor landscapes, using similar to natural environments elements. In its paper “The Economics of Biophilia,” environmental consulting firm Terrapin Bright Green suggests:

“Over the last quarter century, case studies have documented the advantage of biophilic experience, including improved stress recovery rates, lower blood pressure, improved cognitive functions, enhanced mental stamina and focus, decreased violence and criminal activity, elevated moods and increased learning rates.”

There are hundreds more nudges and design strategies such as these that urban planners, architects, product designers, business owners, and homeowners can use to shape the environment around us to improve health and well-being. In the words of Winston Churchill:

“We shape our buildings; thereafter, our buildings shape us.”

The key is to be aware of how our environment affects us and to use this knowledge for good.

Mark Zuckerberg, Priscilla Chan Pledge Billions To Fight All Disease

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan on Wednesday pledged more than $ 3 billion toward a plan to “cure, prevent or manage all disease within our children’s lifetime.”

Speaking through tears at a San Francisco event to announce the initiative, Chan said she hoped to spare parents the pain she had seen while delivering difficult news as a pediatrician.

“In those moments and in many others we’re at the limit of what we understand about the human body and disease, the science behind medicine, the limit of our ability to alleviate suffering. We want to push back that boundary,” she said.

The event was attended by business and political luminaries including former Microsoft Corp Chairman Bill Gates, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom.

Zuckerberg said science and the medical community have made rapid advancements over the last 50 years, including eradicating smallpox and nearly eliminating polio without the aid of modern technology.

“Today, just four kinds of diseases cause the majority of deaths,” Zuckerberg added in a posting on his Facebook page, citing cancer, heart disease, infectious diseases and neurological diseases. “We can make progress on all of them with the right technology.”

The plan includes creating a bioscience research center, called the Biohub, developing a chip to diagnose diseases, and ways to monitor the bloodstream continuously and map cell types in the body.

Chan and Zuckerberg will donate $ 600 million over the next decade to the Biohub in San Francisco, bringing together Bay-area researchers and scientists from the University of California at San Francisco, the University of California at Berkeley and Stanford University.

Two initial Biohub projects will be a Cell Atlas, a map of cells controlling the body’s major organs, and the Infectious Disease Initiative to develop new tools, tests, vaccines and strategies for fighting diseases such as HIV, Ebola and Zika.

The Biohub will be led by University of California, San Francisco professor Joseph DeRisi and Stanford University professor Stephen Quake, whose work includes small molecule screening and biological measurements.

Dr. Cori Bargmann, a Rockefeller University neuroscientist, will lead all of Chan Zuckerberg’s science initiatives.

Any research, tools and material coming out of Biohub, which will work with a network of 10 to 15 laboratories across the world, will be “available to every scientist, everywhere,” Bargmann said.

“If you take great people and set them loose on important problems in an intelligent way and give them a long time horizon there will be progress.”

Focusing On Error In Polls Isn’t Sexy, But It’s Necessary

It’s that point in the election cycle where if you don’t like the results of one poll, you can wait five minutes and another one will come out. People are inundated with numbers, which they might not know how to interpret.

Polls contain “error” in them, which means the numbers are estimates of what people think, rather than precise data points. Pollsters and journalists will usually provide a “margin of error” that approximates how much the numbers might change due to the random chance of who is selected to participate in the poll.

But analysts know there’s more error in a poll than this margin indicates. Some say that’s why we shouldn’t report margins of error at all. And we often don’t do a good job of explaining any type of error to audiences.

Nate Cohn provided an excellent demonstration of polling error not accounted for in a margin of error by having four different sets of pollsters re-analyze data from The New York Times Upshot/ Siena Florida poll. Their results ranged from Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton being 4 points ahead to her GOP opponent Donald Trump ahead by 1 point, using the exact same data but creating their own likely voter calculations. This is an important lesson in non-sampling sources of error: The choices an analyst makes about how to define likely voters can substantially affect the outcome of the poll.

But Cohn takes the lesson a step further and argues that the existence of these other sources of error mean margin of error wasn’t worth reporting in the original pollClearly, the reported margin of error due to sampling, even when including a design effect (which purports to capture the added uncertainty of weighting), doesn’t even come close to capturing total survey error,” Cohn states. 

It isn’t actually unusual for polls not to report a margin of error. Some surveys don’t report margins of error or even mention the concept, particularly online surveys which don’t use random sampling ― the basis for a margin of error calculation. But the NYT Upshot/Siena poll was conducted by telephone, and a margin of error typically accompanies these types of polls.

Not reporting a margin of error brings up a big concern for those of us trying to communicate with readers about polling: If there’s not a prominently listed margin of error, do they understand that there’s error? Do they have any idea how much error there might be? 

Unlike analysts, who know there’s error and can quickly estimate a margin of error by looking at a poll’s sample size, most readers aren’t thinking about the uncertainty in polling estimates. It’s up to the experts to explain it.

The question, then, is how best to explain survey error. Cohn chose to mention it, but not give it an exact figure in the poll release story: “All polls, of course, are subject to a margin of error. But the margin of error does not include many other potential sources of error, like the choices of the many undecided voters, or decisions made by pollsters about how to adjust the poll.”

This is a good start. However, that still leaves readers to wonder just how much error there is in the poll. How much error do surveys usually have? Most non-experts probably don’t have the answer to that question, so could assume the survey only has half a percentage point of error. Or they might assume it has 8 points of error.

It also still doesn’t address error based on people who couldn’t be reached because of how the poll was conducted (“coverage error,” such as those who rely solely on mobile phones in a landline telephone survey), people who didn’t respond to the survey (“nonresponse error”) and potential bias in how the questions were asked and answers recorded (“measurement error”).

We should be able to address error better in the polling field. Pollsters release hundreds of polls in an election cycle, often with great care given to how the poll is conducted and how the sample is designed. It’s time to put more care into estimating and describing the error in those polls. Doing so is important to both the general public trying to understand polls and to pollsters themselves: If we’re providing realistic expectations of error, polling “misses” that are actually reasonable based on expected survey error might be better understood.

But that means putting aside the horserace for a while and focusing on the errors. Unfortunately the horserace is what drives attention and traffic ― and both pollsters and journalists need that to survive in their industries. Technical discussions of error (like this one) aren’t going to get many clicks.

However, Nate Cohn and the four sets of pollsters he worked with took the time to dive into the errors with very useful results. It’s a lesson many experts will likely use well beyond this year’s election. So maybe the risk is worthwhile.

7 Things You Need To Know To Tame The Monkey Mind

The monkey mind is something every modern human is familiar with. It’s that incessant thought stream that no matter how hard you try never seems to settle down.

It’s the worries that keep you up at night, the assumptions that cause you grief, the projections you make about the future and the regrets and sentiments you go over from the past.

To tame the monkey mind takes commitment and a deep inner desire for peace. Calming the monkey mind is the first step on the path towards life mastery.

When you consciously realize that your thoughts are energy, and that the energetic implications of what you maintain focus on are actually creating your life to be based in either joy or suffering, you can be empowered to take control over your monkey mind and access the peace of mind that makes sheer existence a true gift.

1. Seek Common Ground and Connection

Division is a distraction from the divine. When you see yourself as a lone wolf, you lose sight of the pack, and you struggle to survive, let alone thrive. Yet when you can look around and feel a connection to all the people you encounter, everything changes.

You start to focus on connection instead of seeing everything as separate. Nothing is separate. The sun in the sky keeps us all alive. The people around you complaining about their mundane daily disturbances are going through the motions just like you are, they’re merely at a different point in their personal evolution.

Instead of focusing on your independence and feeding your loneliness with divisive thought patterns, bring the focus back to finding common ground.

When you do this you shift your entire perspective.

2. Look Deeper Than the Story

Society, the people you surround yourself with, your past experiences and your present belief system all work to strengthen the story you’re narrating in your head all day long. It’s so easy to attach to your story and your thoughts are the glue that binds you there.

If you struggle with self-esteem and that’s a part of your story then without a doubt your thoughts are the roots keeping that belief alive.

When you can remain present and focus on how you feel in each moment you can start to release the constant narration and let go of the belief structures embedded in your story that hold you back from realizing your true potential.

3. Realize YOU Are Not Your Thoughts

Endless thoughts flow through your mind. A thousand thoughts pass through your mind every hour, and you have two options.

The first option is to allow your mind to act like a hose. Thoughts stream in through the top of the funnel and are directed out, they’re let go of, and they flow elsewhere without attachment.

The second option is to allow your mind to act like a filter. Thoughts attempt to pass through the filter but they get trapped. The filter of your mind clings to them for analysis and attachment. The filter gets all clogged up full of thoughts based in what you want and what you don’t want.

When you believe that every thought matters, that every thought that enters your brain is you, and that every thought needs to be examined, you become overburdened, overwhelmed, confused, directionless and prone to overanalyzing. You create internal resistance because you believe on a subconscious level that you are your thoughts.

When you allow your thoughts to show up and pass away without clinging on to them in an attempt to analyze and integrate, you access a freedom that few people embody. You enter into a vibrational state of allowing which is expansive and creates space for you to access the peace and pure joy of being.

4. Let Go of Excuses

I don’t have time. I’m too busy. These are everyone’s favorite excuses for not allowing connection, acceptance, and peace to enter your life on the level of experience.

When you’re ready to let go of the monkey mind and free yourself from the chains that keep you stuck in your head and separated from the world around you, you stop making excuses.

Breaking down the mental constructs that you’ve been attached to and strengthening for your entire life is no easy task, but it is possible and the more excuses you make, the longer it will take to break away from the mental chatter.

5. Develop a Drama Free Mentality

There’s a tendency in our society to become addicted to drama. The boldest example of this is television, you flick on the TV and suddenly you’re immersed in a world wrought with drama.

Breaking the cycle of drama will create more peace in your life, thoughts and relationships. Over time you can consciously train your brain to let go of the things you would normally make a big dramatic deal over.

Your life can be whatever you want it to be, a soap opera or a peaceful expansive existence that plays out moment by moment.

6. Release Judgement

What were they thinking? What’s wrong with them? Why are they doing that?

Judgment creates an inner resistance, a pushing against what is without ever changing what is. When you allow yourself to move into acceptance, even with the things you don’t particularly like, the monkey mind backs down.

The monkey mind thrives on judgment and drama, it’s the fuel that feeds the fire of your thoughts.

When you would normally jump into judgment, whether it’s over someone else’s actions or your own, try to practice allowing things to just be as they are. Allowing isn’t the same as condoning, it’s simply an energetic shift which helps you release attachment and aversion, the monkey mind’s favorite snacks.

7. Practice Awareness

Practice awareness of the thoughts streaming through your mind. You can’t one day wake up and decide to tame the monkey mind without bringing awareness of the thoughts themselves to the forefront. Awareness is the balm that soothes the irritation the monkey mind loves to create.

Awareness is different from attachment because it integrates with the energy of allowing. Thoughts pass by and your awareness shines a light upon them without the incessant desire to unconsciously attach to their meaning.

In every moment you can bring awareness to the forefront of what you’re feeling and thinking. When you notice anger and irritation bubbling up let yourself become consciously aware of these thoughts and your reaction to them and then just let them go.

5 Body Imbalances You Might Unknowingly Experience

By: Cassie Shortsleeve

Technology has improved our lives in many ways, but not without some consequences, including these five common bodily aches. Here’s how to address the pain without pulling the plug.

There’s no doubt that technology has its perks, from allowing us to work from all corners of the earth to meditating via an app at the touch of a finger. But despite the many advantages technology brings us every single day, it also has a downside–one that can be very painful if ignored. Americans suffer from a number of ailments relating to technology, including a type of back and shoulder pain that is now often referred to as “tech neck” (the repeated act of craning your neck forward and down over a screen, resulting in discomfort that can lead to strain and stiffness). The solution, however, isn’t to disconnect and revert back to powerless Pilgrim living. Instead, heed this advice from Sonima.com‘s pain and anatomy advisor, Pete Egoscue: “If an activity is hurting us, take a look at the body. Pain is the body’s way of trying to tell us something.”

What is your body saying? It could be hinting at an imbalance. Maybe you’re not vertically loaded properly–meaning your head, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles aren’t stacking up right. Or perhaps you’re just not bearing weight evenly, says Egoscue, creator of the Egoscue Method for pain-free living.

To find out exactly what your body is telling you, tune in. Once you start paying attention to the subtle signals (usually accompanied by a minor ache), stretch or shift positions to continue enjoying your TV, laptop, smartphone or whatever device is captivating your attention in comfort and with peace of body and mind. Use Egoscue’s guide below to help translate your body’s messages and take appropriate action.

When this hurts: BACK, SHOULDERS, HEAD
Your body may be saying…change the way you sit.
Sitting with your shoulders slumped forward, hip flexors shortened, and back rounded can put extra stress on your lower back, which may curve into a ‘C’ shape instead of its natural ‘S’ shape. This pain doesn’t come from only sitting, but also from being misaligned. Your body is compensating, Egoscue says.
Listen and learn: Look down at your feet. You want them hip-width apart facing forward with toes slightly turned in. Your knees will want to come together, but keep them out, he says. Then pull your shoulders down, relax your abs, and roll up and forward with your hips, putting an arch back into your lower back with your pelvis. In this position, he says, you’re vertically loaded. “That’s the way you sit without effort. Your body has just adapted and adjusted to what you have conditioned it to do.” Sit like this and you could notice back and shoulder pain dissipate and even see improvements in issues, like constipation and digestion, he says.

To learn the four other body imbalances that you might unknowingly experience, continue reading the original article on Sonima.com.

The Miraculous Nature Of Thought

2016-09-19-1474270792-2820899-Huff1.jpg

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein

The first time I went to La Conner, WA on a four day intensive with Linda Pransky, I had an insight that hit me like a ton of bricks. When I arrived, I believed the way for me to have a deeper experience and connection with my true Self was to fix every belief in my thought system that was distorted. I thought the path to God was to get rid of all my human frailties by eradicating misunderstandings in my consciousness.

I knew that insecurity came from my distorted thoughts. Therefore, I believed I needed to not have insecure thinking. When I became successful in eradicating my misunderstandings and limited thinking, I thought I would finally experience my true nature. I wanted that. I yearned for that. However, what I understood after the intensive was trying to get rid of, and clean up, all of the misunderstandings in my thinking was a fool’s errand. It was an impossible task that would never end, and the never-ending quality of it was making me miserable.

I recognized I could stop trying to fix myself and be okay with my imperfections and human frailty.

This felt like such a relief! I felt so much better from simply not focusing on and trying to change the distortions in my thinking. I immediately experienced more peace and equanimity when I wasn’t thinking about myself and was less self-absorbed.

This left me with the question, “How do I have more of the experience of peace and equanimity?” I could see when I identified less with my negative thinking, I felt better. What I didn’t realize was, I had simply switched my allegiance. Rather than identifying with my negative thinking, I was now stuck on my positive thinking. I was creating pressure for myself by trying to maintain positive thoughts.

I thought I was looking in the direction of not identifying with my thoughts, but really I was still glued to them. I kept myself stuck by looking for the answer to the question of, “How do I get outside of the limitations of my thought system?” This, of course, was simply another fool’s errand. I was basically asking myself, “How do I think my way out of my thought system?” This is an oxymoron if ever I heard one, and left me feeling like quite the moron when I saw it.

What I see now after attending the latest Pransky and Associates Professional Training is that the human experience is to go in and out of our thought system. That is a dance that is part of the natural design. As Teilhard de Chardin says, “We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” From this, I understand it is normal, innate, and effortless to dance between our form and formless nature. The challenge, however, is that my ego wants to know the formless, to experience it, and it can’t.

The very nature of being outside of my thought system means that I can’t be aware of it. As soon as I have awareness, I am back in the world of form. To intellectually know my true Self – my formless nature – is impossible, and that is what I have been trying to do! I have been expending energy, yet again, in the direction of the impossible. It felt subtler this time, but was exhausting nonetheless.

I have been thinking that my peak experiences of bliss, peace, and equanimity are me knowing my formless nature — the truth of who I AM, and I have been seeking more of that. However, they are simply experiences in the world of form made up from the same stuff of all of my experiences including despair and distress. They result from thought!

I may have a preference for one experience over another, but they are all the effect of my thinking. I might like the flavor of strawberry water over lemon water, but the medium for the flavor is still water. I may prefer the experience of bliss to the experience of sadness, but the medium of delivery is the same – thought. My experiences are all the result of thought, and thought is part the world of form. Thought is an expression of the formless energy coming into form.

Understanding this is freeing. I can see that I don’t need to chase after or resist any experience when they all come from the same thing. I can’t do anything to know my formless nature because it is formless so I can stop trying.

However, just because it is impossible to know my Authentic Self intellectually, doesn’t mean it is not there. The dance between formless and form is innate even if I can only see the form. I cannot think myself into the dance, nor can I think myself out of the dance. It is beyond my personal thinking. It is beyond me, knowing that is what allows me to let go.

I don’t need to fix my self, my experience, or my thinking. My thought system with all its misunderstandings is self-healing. I get the insights I need from the formless intelligence behind life. Fresh thought that allows me to see more clearly arrives when it does. I don’t control it, nor do I need to. The intelligence that knows how to grow a baby, how to heal a cut, and how to grow an acorn into an oak tree, is the same formless essence that provides me with wisdom.

The intelligence behind life is for me. It guides the unfolding of my highest potential. I don’t need to figure that out, or even know what my highest potential looks like. I can rest in the present moment, being with what is, grateful for whatever level of consciousness I have, knowing that it is not on me to change or manage my thoughts so I have a different experience. The miracle is never in the content of my thinking, it is in the capacity I have, as we all do, to create and re-create my experience moment to moment via thought from the sacred to the profane. In that I can trust.

Clinton Versus Trump: Black Swans And Perfect Storms

Supporters of Hillary Clinton have long feared the ” Black Swan” – that cataclysmic event which gives Donald Trump more than a puncher’s chance to knock her out. But more discerning worriers conjure a perfect storm of circumstances which, coalescing at just the wrong time, dismantle her edge in the electoral college.

Two weeks ago the skies seemed clear enough. The month started with a more comfortable candidate taking questions from reporters, giving good and measured speeches, and dismissing the feverish rumors about her health with a few amusing quips. She was reaching out to disaffected Republicans while attacking Trump with an air of presidential confidence. The most concrete concerns focused on turnout and demographics and, even here, her superior ground game gave her several paths to 270 electoral votes.

Still, it was possible to imagine a demographic breakdown which, although unlikely, would place her on the razor’s edge between victory and defeat.

In theory, Trump’s gift for repelling blacks, Hispanics, women, young people and college-educated whites gave her a daunting advantage. So why were the polls tightening? The simplest answer was Trump’s massive lead among whites without a college degree – particularly working-class men. Here, Trump’s attacks on free trade and immigration, and promises to preserve entitlements, gains him a larger and more loyal following than Mitt Romney enjoyed in 2012.

True, this demographic is shrinking as opposed to those where Clinton leads. This gives her the potential to overwhelm Trump’s narrower base. But, in itself, changing demographics means much less than intensity of support – who actually shows up to vote. Thus a gifted pessimist can imagine a scenario where, despite her organizational advantages, turnout goes absolutely haywire.

Start with what appears to be a passion gap. Polling shows that over 60% of the registered voters who support Trump are following the campaign closely, and over 90% say that they are certain to vote. Clinton voters are less attentive – 45% – and a full 20% are less committed to voting. Thus polls of likely – as opposed to registered – voters erase Clinton’s edge.

There are reasons to question this model, and it overlooks the distribution of votes in the electoral college. Still, to win comfortably Clinton must reassemble the Obama coalition: the minorities and young people – otherwise disinclined to vote – who turned out to elect and reelect America’s first black president. So far, it seems, she is falling short.

Obama is working this demographic hard, and the Clinton campaign is deploying Michelle Obama, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren to help. But millennials, particularly blacks but also other minorities, seem less drawn to Hillary Clinton than to the president, and young African-Americans are harder to reach than their parents and grandparents. The question is less who they vote for than whether they vote at all.

A depressed turnout among her potential supporters would jeopardize Clinton in crucial swing states where the race has tightened, leaving her more vulnerable to defeat. And a less enthusiastic voting base leaves her vulnerable to unforeseen events – as this weekend’s bombings reminded us yet again.

Even so, to have a chance of winning Trump needs to turn out a bunch of less educated white Americans who almost never vote. Here, too, passion is important, and events may matter – these otherwise disaffected people have to believe that Trump can win and that, as president, he would be a human Powerball ticket, transforming their lives for the better. While a massive influx of new voters seems unlikely, it is not inconceivable – as Trump’s recent rise in Ohio suggests.

Still, this alone is not enough. Trump also needs more Republicans to come home – including suburban and college-educated whites. To some degree, polls suggest that this is already occurring. Indeed, given that our politics are polarized, our candidates polarizing, and our information compartmentalized, the grip of old loyalties will only intensify. But to garner all the Republican – leaning but wary voters he needs, Trump needs to look normal or, more accurately, to create the illusion of normality.

Finally, there is the impact of third-party candidates – Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. Trump not only needs them to outperform expectations for such political outliers, but to drain disproportionate support from Clinton. And, as of now, polls suggest that third-party candidates are hurting her more than Trump. The question is how many, and how much.

But suppose all that happens: overwhelming blue-collar support for Trump; depressed turnout for Clinton; a host of new Trump voters; a massive restoration of party loyalty among Republicans; and third-party damage to Clinton in key states. Further assume that virtually every important event between now and November breaks Trump’s way – including, contrary to right reason, the debates.

It then becomes possible to imagine a Trump electoral college victory, of necessity based on winning Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and, least likely, Pennsylvania. Or even that nightmare of improbabilities: a 269 – 269 electoral college tie. That would throw the election into the House of Representatives, which could give us President Trump.

This is the sequence of horribles that worries Democratic pros. For with the economy still flagging for too many Americans, the GOP should have the advantage of a “change election.” What they need is for their candidate to become thinkable for a sufficient plurality of Americans.

This is why thoughtful Democrats have started sweating the polls, near – even despite an overwhelming advertising assault by the Clinton campaign. They fret that all the negative media about emails and the Clinton Foundation, however skewed, is tarnishing the positive image of Hillary Clinton which emerged from her convention.They wonder if her campaign has focused too much on denouncing Trump instead of inspiring voters. They fear the unknown which is yet to come.

Then stuff started happening.

The first warning shot was fired by the moderator who couldn’t shoot straight – Matt Lauer. During back-to-back appearances at a forum devoted to military matters, Lauer consumed much of Clinton’s time aggressively re-litigating the email controversy. In embarrassing contrast, he allowed Trump to deliver a series of lies and idiocies with his usual bluster, largely unimpeded by any references to reality.

This drove home some pitfalls awaiting Clinton in the “debates” – a word to be used advisedly. First, the quality of discourse depends greatly on the skill and resolve of the moderator. Second, absent a determined interlocutor to call him to account, a self- assured ignoramus like Trump can appear “presidential” while reciting nonsense. Given that the expectations for Trump are so low, in such a permissive environment he might be deemed the “winner” if he simply completes most of his sentences.

Then Clinton made an unforced error which confirmed the existence of a double standard – one for Trump, the other for everyone else. Speaking at a donor event – ever a fallow ground for folly – Clinton tossed half of Trump’s followers in “the basket of deplorables” – the “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it.” A pretty effective list of adjectives if directed against the man himself. But against a chunk of the public, not so much – at least if you’re running for president.

Such verbal slips are nothing new. Obama described a Republican base “clinging to their guns and religion”; Romney told a gaggle of rich folks that 47% of their fellow citizens were moochers. They both paid – Romney in particular, because it fit his caricature as a heartless plutocrat.

To some degree, so will Clinton pay. For those Democrats keeping score, it was a reminder that this year’s playing field is far from level – Trump spouts far worse things with such metronomic regularity that nothing he says seems to stick. Except, ironically, to Hillary Clinton.

Potentially more worrisome was her literal stumble at a Sunday event to commemorate 9/11. On Friday, it transpired, she had been diagnosed with pneumonia. Given the rigors of campaigning, this was no surprise. But her decision to “power through” her schedule without disclosing her illness led to a ruder surprise – an alarming piece of film followed by several hours of delay before the campaign fronted her pneumonia.

This created two problems, both predictable. For a moment, at least, it fueled all the health hysteria fomented by the Trump campaign – including that she is suffering from cerebral damage. More lasting, it fed the usual trope about Clinton’s lack of “transparency.”

Her campaign has put out more health information – which, along with steadiness during the debates, should help put this to rest. It also appears that, as he did with the aptly-named Dr. Oz, Trump will continue to vamp about his own superlative health, rooted in the benefits of Big Macs and insomnia. Still, this incident was another unpleasant reminder that, in presidential campaigns, surprises happen – whether or not provided by the Russians in October or, as just occurred, by terrorists from New Jersey. And it kept her off the stump for a few precious days.

As vexing, for once Trump did not stumble over himself to squander an advantage. His response to Clinton’s illness was, for him, positively demure. Instead, almost like a normal candidate, he seized on Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” to deplore her condescending cruelty to Americans who long to make their country great again.

Smart – this no doubt energizes his base and, quite possibly, could rally more nonvoters to Trump. Those “Deplorables For Trump” T-shirts are on their way. And the last thing Democrats need is a deepening class war with blue-collar whites – they’ve been on a wrong end of this one for years.

Perhaps fearful of humiliation, Trump has allowed his new campaign team to impose greater discipline. He is hewing more to prepared texts; blurring some of his most controversial positions; veering less into his own grievances. His attack lines, however outrageous, are more focused on Clinton. And he is finally up with attack ads of his own, placed strategically instead of at his whim. The Clinton camp can no longer count on Trump to help them – at least not quite so often.

Still, late last week, Trump provided fresh evidence of his own transcendent squalor. With chilling carelessness, he falsely accused Hillary Clinton of wanting to “destroy” the Second Amendment, and suggested that her Secret Service protectors “disarm” so that we could “see what happens to her.” This followed the latest episode in his five-year history of spearheading the birther movement – a “press conference” which spotlighted his own mendacity and, more important, renewed fundamental questions about the media’s responsibility in covering his campaign.

Pressed by his brain trust to at last abandon birtherism, Trump created drama by promising a major announcement. He then kept the media waiting for an hour, tying up cable news outlets, before appearing to promote his latest hotel. He capped this with a 30 -second statement that he now believed that America’s first black president was born in the United States.

He did not explain how, after years of falsehoods, he had now divined the truth. Nor did he apologize. Instead, he praised himself by offering still more lies: “Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it.”

In fact, the Clinton campaign did not indulge in birther rhetoric. Its principal agent was Trump himself. Nor, despite his statement, did he accept Obama’s birth certificate when the president made it public – to the contrary, he questioned its validity. Never once, until last Friday, did he disown any part of the racist lies and insinuations which paved his entry into political life, and inspired the widespread belief among Republicans that Obama is a foreign-born Muslim.

For once, the combination of his contempt for truth, and for the media, inspired a swift reaction. Several cable commentators expressed embarrassment that he played them; major newspapers documented the litany of statements promoting birtherism which showed Trump, yet again, to be a liar. And, in the wake of this performance, important outlets – particularly The New York Times – analyzed the impact on our politics of candidate whose recourse to lies is so comprehensive and unconstrained. Here, as well it should have, the press at large refused to serve as conduit for a shameless and amoral con man.

The unanswered question arising from this incident is whether the media will, at last, cover Trump with the sustained rigor his candidacy deserves. For the Clinton campaign, this is perhaps the biggest worry of all – not simply that the media scrutinizes Clinton much more harshly, but that it slights substance in favor of superficiality, relieving Trump of the in-depth appraisal his candidacy is due.

Examples abound. We know that Trump admires Vladimir Putin. But what more do we know about this worrisome subject – including, as but one example, his financial ties to Russia?

Thanks to the Washington Post, we know that the Trump Foundation is a funnel for giving away other people’s money, including through illegal campaign contributions. But when will the press call out Trump for his unsupported assertions – widely reported without criticism – that the Clinton Foundation is a criminal enterprise awash in bribery?

And what about “transparency” writ large? We hear that Clinton’s health scare intensified her problems in this area. But what of the obvious truth that Trump is, by far, the most comprehensively secretive presidential candidate in modern history, concealing his tax returns, his business dealings, his sources of financing, and his supposedly massive- and quite possibly fictitious – charitable contributions?

It is not simply that the media narrative has created a false equivalency. It has given Clinton’s areas of opacity, though far less than Trump’s, a disproportionate share of coverage.

But another problem for the Clinton campaign is the media’s tendency to elevate transparency over substance.

It is not hyperbolic to suggest that, on matters of policy, Trump is a crank candidate – Lyndon LaRouche with money. Never has a major party nominee been so inexperienced, uninformed, behaviorally erratic, intellectually dishonest, and pervasively untruthful. His ideas about the economy, foreign policy, and national defense are routinely inconsistent, contradictory, incoherent and tinged with nonsense from the fringes of political thought.

His statements on taxation are, in the main, self canceling gibberish. On the day of his birther announcement, Trump backed away from a promised $ 1 trillion tax-cut for small businesses, before his campaign assured one interest group that Trump was still behind it, then promised another that Trump was not. In the last year, he has praised and denounced Janet Yellen and the Fed so many times that but one thing is clear – he has no grasp whatsoever of monetary policy. As for critical matters of science, he is an utter crackpot, whether the subject be global warming or vaccination.

And what of counter-terrorism? Trump’s renewed denunciations of Muslims, intemperate attacks on Hillary Clinton and promises to be tough may resonate with voters, especially in the wake of the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the stabbings in Minnesota – the kind of unpredictable occurrences which worry the Clinton campaign. But it is not sufficient for the media to speculate about the electoral impact of such events. The real question is what Trump’s “toughness” actually means in terms of policy and effectiveness, and how this compares to Clinton’s proposals to combat terrorism at home and abroad.

The fact that, unlike LaRouche, Trump is a major party candidate whose entertainment value provides the media with millions of eyeballs means that – unlike LaRouche – he could actually become president. Thus what he proposes to do as president is of the gravest consequence, and should be to those who cover him. And if Trump is the proverbial naked emperor on matters of policy, that must be rigorously explored.

But there hasn’t been nearly enough of this – and likely won’t be.

Why? There are lots of reasons, some rooted in institutional self-interest. But one of the most pious – and bogus – excuses comes from the public editor of the New York Times, Liz Spayd.

The media’s reluctance to critically examine Trump’s policy positions, she suggests, stems from the standards of objective journalism. Those who claim that the media is mired in “false equivalency” between Trump and Clinton are calling for “a partisan explanation passed off as factual judgment.” Thus the media should not be concerned that coverage of Clinton’s emails is excessive, lest they go down the “slippery slope” of covering the emails too little.

To say the least, this is problematic. To edify Ms.Spayd about where her own slippery slope is taking us, by way of grotesque exaggeration I offer this fictitious German news story from 1933: “While Herr Hitler’s statements about population control seem ill-considered, the appearance of the possibility of the potential for a conflict of interest on behalf of Mayor Schulz is equally troubling.”

My serious point is straightforward – both candidates’ statements about policy should not only be reported, but analyzed and dissected with bipartisan rigor. Nonetheless, in Spayd’s view, what critics “really want is for journalists to apply their own moral and ideological judgments to the candidates.”

Really? Or do they simply think that the media should be something more – and better – than a megaphone for unexamined claims on issues of the utmost public importance. Fairness in journalism should not mean a grant of substantive immunity to any candidate, passed off as objective journalism. Objectivity is different than vapidity.

Yet here we are. And so we await the first debate, perhaps the single most important moment of this campaign. As much as on the candidates, its outcome depends on whether the moderator, Lester Holt, asks Clinton and Trump the hard questions a president must answer.

For the candidates, that’s only fair. For the rest of us, it’s essential.

How to Waste Your Entire Life: A Quick Guide To Pleasure

The easiest way to waste decades of your life is to mistake pleasure for fulfillment.

Pleasure lives in the realm of now. It’s made of feeling and emotion, which are both very important, but predictably unstable. It’s impossible to base a meaningful life solely on the pursuit of pleasure.

At the extreme end of pleasure: over-eating, over-sleeping, chronic masturbation and sex addiction, television, benders, cocaine and ice cream (the verdict is still out here). Push the button, get the stimulus. Constant stimulation to dull the pain, anxiety and existential uncertainty of being a human in society.

It feels good to feel good. So why not try to feel good all the time? Pass the mint chocolate chip, please.

Fulfillment is concerned with your highest vision for the future. It doesn’t equate pain or discomfort today with pain or discomfort tomorrow. It assumes that the best is always yet to come. Those looking for fulfillment out of life will do things that aren’t fun now, to reap massive rewards later.

In his book Autobiography of a Yogi, Indian spiritual guru Paramahansa Yogananda recalls a conversation between a sage and his student:

The student exclaimed, “Master, you are wonderful….You have renounced riches and comforts to seek God and teach us wisdom.”

To which the wise sage replied:

“You are reversing the case! I have left a few paltry rupees, a few petty pleasures, for a cosmic empire of endless bliss. How then have I denied myself anything? I know the joy of sharing the treasure. Is that a sacrifice? The shortsighted worldly folk are verily the real renunciates! They relinquish an unparalleled divine possession for a poor handful of earthly toys!”

This irony captures the essence of seeking pleasure over fulfillment.

The other way toward fulfillment: Training for a triathlon, starting a business, writing a book, recording an album. All of these things can bring pleasure in the short term. But more often than not, they do not. They are not fun. They are a constant struggle. They take years to master. They are never urgent and the easiest things to postpone.

(Especially if a new season of Walking Dead is on.)

But these are also the types of activities that, done day after day, lead to the highest quality of life and most pleasure long term. Not the acute, “OMG this is so fun” type of pleasure — but the more subtle, albeit equally exhilarating feeling of overarching satisfaction with one’s life.

These types of activities make you feel like you’re worth a damn. And that’s important. Because you are.

Pleasure versus fulfillment is the difference between spending your time and investing it. Or the difference between consuming and creating.

The time will pass anyway — but at the end of a lifetime, what will you have to show for it?
Some of us will have 100,000 hours of television, a leased Mercedes and a bunch of clothes we got sick of last year as evidence that we were here.

Others will have created a legacy that leaves the world a better place and makes a difference for people we’ve never even met.

Which one will you be?

Jennifer Lopez, First Lady Michelle Obama And Myself On ‘Feeling Comfortable In Your Own Skin’

I won’t forget an episode of the last season of American Idol when one of judge Jennifer Lopez’s comments resonated with me. Reacting to a stellar performance, she said something to the effect of, “It’s all about feeling comfortable in your own skin.” She praised the contestant, and passed on a lesson to me that night as well.

Isn’t it all about feeling comfortable in our own skin? Certainly as social beings we feel the desire to be a part multiple social networks whether they are through dinner parties, work meetings, brunches, picnics, book clubs, or any context really. The message to feel assured about ourselves, our personalities and our impact on others is a truly important one, and one that we might take time to reflect on so we can cultivate the feeling. How we feel about ourselves can amplify or limit our enjoyment in life and, more significantly, is a feeling that can contribute to great self-esteem if we value ourselves properly. Our impact on others can be shaped tremendously with a helpful dose of self-value and self-esteem, strengthening our ability to contribute meaningfully and effectively in society.

When I hear good advice, I like to share it to help others, and Ms. Lopez’s words are a good example. I don’t know if she came up with the advice herself, but at the time she spoke them it did catch my attention.

A related strong piece of wisdom is the advice that First Lady Michelle Obama gave at the United State of Women’s Summit while being interviewed by Oprah. (View the interview @11:10.) She talked about self-value, and how the FLOTUS could not have done her job as First Lady as comfortably did she not have the self-value she’s had for herself for decades. While self-esteem is a concept we may feel we don’t have control over at times, self-value is not like that. We can influence our thoughts and perspective to shape a healthier self-value, which in turn can boost self-esteem. It is so important, especially in today’s society, that we treat ourselves better than ever because most others do not simply have the time to do so. We ought to care for and believe in our best traits and understand that being human means we will have difficulties presented as well.

Loving yourself is as important as every other way we care for ourselves, like eating and sleeping. Being narcissistic is different, as achieving balance in self-value is important, just like balance in everything else in life. However, if you need to reflect on why you should love yourself, take some time and do the soul-searching. Keep at those things which make you feel the most self-confident. Those habits and hobbies will likely reveal your biggest strengths. Remember, we are all so small in the bigger scheme of society and the world’s affairs, but within each one of us lies a universe of its own.

Here are three steps to follow if you want to develop greater self-value and, in turn, feel comfortable in your own skin:

1. Reflect on your traits to develop greater self-value.

What traits do you have that you love the most? How do you demonstrate these traits daily? Take a moment to talk to loved ones and friends if this is too challenging on your own. Write your thoughts down if you like.

2. Get out there and share your traits in social settings.

When you are an active member of your social networks, it can create a positive feeling, especially if you’re able to show off your best traits. You might be super thoughtful, kind, loving, or particularly self-confident and loving. Getting out there so that others get a taste of your character and mindset while you feel confident and positive can help you feel great about yourself.

3. Be on the look out for great advice and continuous ways to improve yourself.

The journey to shaping our attitude and mindset will constantly shift based on life factors. Having the ability to adapt and be grateful in every circumstance will no doubt be a huge asset if you can. Love yourself, live gratefully, and dream big. Hopefully, with the ability to value your traits and personality, you can pretty much always, ‘feel comfortable in your own skin,’ and continue to shine through it all.

3 Basic Choices To Empower Our Relationships

There are so many things we can all do to improve our existing relationships, regardless of their nature. But if we only applied these 3 Basic Choices To Empower Our Relationships, we would certainly make them more fulfilling for all parties involved.

2016-09-19-1474308214-435847-Couplewithbikes_iStock_70626075_LARGE.jpg

#1 Choose Loyalty
This of course means being there when it matters. But it also means standing up for the relationship by not getting involved in gossip talks with others, about our lover, friend, sibling or whoever that person may be. The loyalty we show when the person is there to see is powerful, but the one we display to others when that person is not there to witness, can make the relationship bullet proof.

#2 Choose To Give
Relationships are, in many instances, like joint bank accounts. The account holders can only withdraw what they’ve put in. And the more they put in, the more “compound interest” they can expect to reap! Contrary to common belief, our main responsibility in a relationship is to give. It’s always easy to question the other “joint account holder’s” behavior, but if we have the relationship at heart, we will seek to give first.

#3 Choose Truthfulness
There’s always a fork in the road in any relationships. One side of the fork seems to commonly offer a wider and smoother path, whereas the other often looks narrower and bumpier. This comes in the form of an event or a situation when we have to choose between the plain truth or… a “twisted” one. As hard as it is to say, we should always choose the truth. When we do, not only does it display that we stand for our word, it also echoes our loyalty and our willingness to continue to give to the relationship.

The endless choices we now have in all areas of life, affect our perceptions. Perceptions like the new “flavor of the month” or the novelty, ought to be better than the “old” one… Or the sense that everything is disposable, because after all, I can always get a new upgraded version of what I have… It brings also the notion of “change,” that we have to look for change at all costs, because if we don’t, we may become obsolete or “passé.”

When it comes to our relationships, we seriously think that we have to be very cautious about the subtle effects of the “endless choices society” we live in. We think it’s time for all of us to make basic choices that will empower the relationships we cherish. The kind of choices that are not new, on the contrary, they are rooted, old fashioned choices, that define who we are, where we come from, and more importantly can remind the other person in the relationship, what we intend to continue to build upon.

Why Hillary Lost: A Premature Obit

On the high, crenelated ramparts of Castle Clinton, a chill breeze is stirring ― a faint but gnawing sense that the White Walkers are coming, wearing “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” baseball caps on their skinless noggins.

If Donald Trump does sack the fortress, no one who lost the battle will want to admit it was Hillary Clinton’s fault. It will have had nothing to do with, say, “transparency” or calling bearded villagers “deplorables” or the Iraq War vote or the simple fact that middle-of-the-road Clintonism ran out of gas as a public philosophy.

No, other individuals, groups and forces will have to be blamed. In fact, they already are, pre-emptively. If Trump wins, we’re all going to be too busy moving to Canada to read the postmortems (or write them), so we offer them to you now:

By Far, This Was the Most Important Thing I Learned at Stanford Medicine X…

I never get tired of watching planes take off, and the bigger they are, the better I like them. For instance, every time I see a 747 lift off the ground, I wonder what fabulous adventure awaits its passengers.

I’m currently watching quite a few 747’s and even a few A-380’s jet off to the far corners of the earth. I’m sitting with my wife Stephanie in the Admiral’s Club at the San Francisco International Airport. Technically, I shouldn’t be watching them. We should be on a flight to Phoenix for the first leg on our way home to St. Louis. But thanks to faulty wiring, a monsoon in the Ohio Valley, or a wicked case of IBS in the abdomen of our pilot, our flight has been delayed by over two hours.

And because our layover in Phoenix was only an hour… guess who’s going to miss their connection?

Back when the airlines didn’t give a rat’s ass about saving money, they used to have exponentially more flights. Think back ten years when you would sometimes get on a flight to find a grand total of eight people… three being the flight attendants.

Once things with the economy went south and jet fuel skyrocketed, the major carriers came to the conclusion that they could save a fair amount of shekels by drastically cutting the number of flights, and overselling the ones remaining.

The result did save them a lot money, but also provided travelers that little extra… something. Now, because every plane is stuffed like a tube of liquid sausage, if you miss a connection due to any type of delay, you almost never get a decent re-route to your destination. I won’t say the name of the airline, but all that the acronym for Alcoholics Anonymous could do for us was a tick shy of miserable.

Thanks for that, AA.

Originally, we weren’t even booked on this flight. When I first found out I was going to be speaking at Stanford Medicine X, I made the assumption that the talk would probably happen on the first two days of the three-day conference. Seriously, who actually does anything on the last day of a conference? It’s usually breakfast, a keynote, lunch, and the door.

So I made a reservation for a 6:30am flight that would get us back to St. Louis in time to spend time with our boys, Sam and Ben.

Well, you know what they say when you assume…

My friend Sarah, who got me on the panel in the first place, informed me that our time was 9:15… on Sunday morning. After a phone call and an additional $ 400 (thank you AA!), our flight was rebooked for 3:45pm. At least we would still get home on Sunday. Barely.

Once we arrived in Palo Alto, we didn’t give another thought to our travel plans as we immersed ourselves into the wonder, awe, exhaustion, and life affirmation that is Stanford Medicine X. Stephanie and I got so much out of the speakers who shared their stories, and even more out of the people we met and befriended.

The panel that I was so blessed to be a part of went off swimmingly. My compatriots Sarah, Pamela, and Bob were so smart and knowledgeable and nice. I actually became smarter via osmosis. At the last minute, we were even able to include my friend Dave from Stupid Cancer to talk about the amazing app Instapeer, and how it is radically changing how young adults with cancer connect with each other.

I could not have been happier with how it went. The reaction from our audience was so positive, and the questions we were able to elicit gave us confidence that we struck a nerve. It was probably one of the top five highlights of my professional life.

I was still riding a natural high when we walked up to the kiosk at SFO to print our boarding passes. My first hint that something was wrong was the bright flashing red light when they found my itinerary. Before I could decipher what was happening, my phone rang.

Hi!

…said Jane, my robo-caller…

This is Alcoholics Anonymous. You’re going to miss your connection home, which blows a goat. Here’s your only choice… which is actually our choice. We’ll get you to Phoenix. Then, you’re going to wait five hours to take the red-eye to Chicago at 12:45am, but we suggest you eat early, because they shut everything down at 9:00pm at Sky Harbor on a Sunday. After arriving in the crotch-rot that is O’Hare at 6:30am, you’ll have forty-five minutes to choke down a breakfast burrito and sprint like a gazelle to catch your third flight to your final destination. Have a super day!

Marvelous.

So we paid the $ 57 per person that the Admirals Club charges for two one-day passes. They killed the thirty-day family-awesome pass in May that would have been a much better value.

Thank you, AA!

After stewing for a few minutes, Stephanie called her mom to tell her the good news while I went foraging for neon-yellow cubes of cheese, pita chips, a surprisingly amazing soup with chicken and lemon and orzo, and two large glasses Pinot Grigio. Tip of the cap to Angela for the full pours, by the way.

After devouring the provisions, Steph and I sat back and reminisced about our favorite speakers of the weekend. There was Jonathan Bush, CEO of athenahealth, who gave possibly the funniest, most-entertaining, and crazy-insightful keynotes I’ve ever heard. You knew you were in for a good time when the first words were…

Well shit. How do you follow the prior speakers? These people are like roses, and I’m just a turd. Thanks Medicine X for exposing my turdness.

There was the panel on the potential opioid epidemic in America, and how my thoughts of it being an either/or issue were so grossly wrong. There are more nuances than you can imagine, and some of the participants got a little chippy with each other. Definitely popcorn worthy.

But then there was Terry Marlin. Terry is a husband and dad who owns a small manufacturing company in Tennessee. He has two sons, Jonah who is twelve, and Emory who is ten. In 2009, both of Terry’s sons were diagnosed with an absolutely horrible disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. It’s a disease that robs the body of its physical ability to move… before it kills you in your early to mid-twenties. Since diagnosis, both boys have lost the use of their legs, and Jonah has lost the use of his arms. And things will only get worse.

There is no cure. More than likely, there will be no cure before both boys succumb.

This has not stopped Terry. Together with his wife Sonya, they have raised just shy of a million dollars for research. It is a staggering number, guaranteed to make a very large dent, if not full blown crevice into the scourge of DMD.

But while Terry has hope, there are times when this disease tears at his very soul. His boys ask, “Daddy, you’ve raised so much money. When are we going to be able to walk again?”

At this point, all of us in the audience were in bits. We knew, like Terry knew, that he didn’t have the answer… and possibly if not probably wouldn’t before it was too late for Jonah and Emory. It would be enough to sink anyone into an unquenchable depression.

Yet through his tears, Terry left us with this piece of beauty…

My son has lost the use of his arms and legs, and yes, it’s physically hard on all of us. But whenever I pick him up, I have to wrap his arms around my shoulders. So no matter how hard a time I might have at a given moment, I get to hug my son every day. And that can’t be a bad thing.

And hours later, as Stephanie and I sit in a luxurious lounge with wine and cheese and pita chips and wifi and power outlets and football on twelve televisions, I realize that no matter how bad my day gets, my worst day will never be as hard as Terry’s best day.

But while his hardships are many, his moments of joy dwarf them, because he’s figured out what so many of us haven’t: we have the ability to choose our focal points, and he’s decided to focus on the blessings he has.

So while I could sit here and think about the fact that we’ll be traveling for eight more hours that we should, I will instead pour my energy into embracing the eight more hours that I get to spend with my best friend, my traveling buddy, my forever everything, and the woman who gave me two loves of my life.

And to top it off, some guy sitting across from us in the Alcoholics Anonymous Admirals Club just gave us two free drink tickets on his way out the door. Things are looking up already.

Stephen Burlingham Going Beyond Art for Youth with Cancer

Cancer. The word that terrifies us, at any age. But when a young person is struck by it, it seems all the more tragic. To help cope with this harsh reality, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who joined together to form WHO Cares and created The Lounge at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). This is a place that allows teenagers to feel like teenagers and immerse in an atmosphere far unlike a hospital’s (program).

The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Teen and Young Adult (TYA@MSK) Program offers special services to MSK’s teen and young adult population.

The Lounge is a space designed especially for this unique age group that was made possible by a $ 1 million donation from Teen Cancer America. The nonprofit organization, co-founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, partners with hospitals throughout the U.S. to develop specialized facilities for teens and young adults with cancer.

Inspired to go beyond art to create a space for healing, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center turned to a new friend of mine, the extraordinary thinker and doer Stephen Burlingham. Stephen, speaking to our foundation’s young global leaders this summer, explained his recent piece “Whisper” featured in the MSK Lounge for Teens and Young Adults:

I wanted to go beyond art. “Whisper,” for me, is hope for the patients, the family and friends of children living with cancer. My work springs directly from envisioning humanity’s cumulative knowledge and belief encapsulated within an ever-expanding membrane that emanates from the Elements themselves.

My work stands for the universal Membrane and involves my search to find the spiritual, the mindful passage, to allow one to break through our restrains and to see what lies beyond our sensory world. To perceive the Intangible – that which is unable to be touched or grasped, that lacks a physical presence.

Stephen is no stranger when it comes with working with children in needs. The grand-grandson of the renowned designer Louis Comfort Tiffany, Stephen was commissioned for designing the award for the Save the Children’s 75th Anniversary Benefit in 2007. Three visionary leaders were honored at that benefit with Save the Children’s Global Humanitarian Awards — former President George H. W. Bush, former President Bill Clinton, and Melinda Gates.

Unlike any other artist I have met, Stephen is charismatic, spiritual, intelligent – and deeply philosophical. If you didn’t know he was an artist, you might think he is a humanitarian.

One of his works, a permanent stone sculpture entitled “The Crossing,” was erected in the ancient port of Bodrum, Turkey, on the Mediterranean. He told me the piece now bears witness to the eternal laws that are constant over time, language and culture – and the great civilizations which unite humanity.

Another of his work in progress, “The Gateway,” is an installation project that explores the frontier between the tangible and the intangible. “Traversing this universal Membrane is at the core of my work,’ he said, “and the search to find the spiritual, the mindful passage, to allow one to break through our restraints and see what lies beyond our sensory world. To perceive the Intangible.”

Cancer can sometimes feel like that, intangible and out of one’s grasp. The artist speaks of his piece as a way to “look through and beyond.” I took this as a nod to those battling cancer. The Lounge at MSK provides an escape for teenagers who want to be able to live their lives as if they are somewhere else other than a hospital.

“I believe it is up to each patient and family member to choose to see and to take from your piece what you intended to offer them,” Stephen told us.

His work “Whisper,” I believe, is aptly named. Whisper surround hospitals. In Stephen’s whispers, we see something else – a different way to speak up. Among the whispers are the intangible possibility that things can get better, and that people may truly heal.

Meera Gandhi, an activist and CEO of The Giving Back Foundation, is a good friend of us both. Meera helped me gain some insight into Stephen’s life and work:

When I walked into Sloan Kettering and got to the lounge, the yellow art piece “Whisper” by Stephen Burlingham reminded me of the sun. I assumed Stephen was thinking of sunlight and energy to heal when he designed that.

The Lounge has great energy and is so comfortable and has the guitar from The Who hanging on the wall. Stephen shared that he had such joy creating the piece and hoped many teens would be healed of cancer and enjoy great downtime in the relaxed lounge created at MSK.

Meera received our foundation’s Humanitarian of the Year Award in 2015.

Jeremy Hu, gallerist and global adviser to our foundation, agrees:

When you step into The Lounge at Sloan Kettering, the first thing you notice is the vibrancy of Stephen’s work brightening up the walls, signaling a hopeful tomorrow, one that is cancer-free. There is such peace in Burlingham’s pieces. The main element blends seamlessly with the world around it. It lifts you up.

A challenge we have as a foundation and young global leadership program is to try to relate to our readers the breadth and scope of those thought leaders and global citizens whom we meet during the course of our activities. Stephen Burlingham is perhaps the most intellectually engaging and challenging individual we have encountered. One piece on his hospital installation does not begin to unravel his myriad mysteries.

2016-09-18-1474224765-2027162-079F186D707A499980668C21052A029F.jpg

With this in mind, we have determined to create a series about his artistic achievements. Stephen’s world revolves around CoAu – the iconic markers of the paradigm shift of Humanity’s Consciousness, The Gateway, the physical portal of the new consciousness, and 0M1.org, a community forming around this new consciousness.

As we sat around our dining table, we discussed with Stephen his vision. In short, the artist sees three current parts: Joining the idea/vision, a shared curiosity in Humanity’s future and the cosmos; Collaborating in the realization of the Gateway; and Bringing together thought leaders and interested parties (people, universities, think tanks, etc.). Our young team seemed anxiously eager to absorb his ideas.

A creative life force such as Stephen Burlingham is difficult to encapsulate and even harder to pigeonhole. Young patients living with cancer who find themselves in The Lounge at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center don’t care – they simply find enormous comfort in his piece “Whisper.”

Our foundation is actively discussing how best we might engage him in the future. Should he be Artist-in-Residence, Humanitarian of the Year, or simply honorary chair of our Global Advisory Board? Whatever role he may one day assume with us, it is clear that Stephen Burlingham is going to change the world.

Foodies


This important cultural analysis tells two stories about food. The first depicts good food as democratic. Foodies frequent ‘hole in the wall’ ethnic eateries, appreciate the pie found in working-class truck stops, and reject the snobbery of fancy French restaurants with formal table service. The second story describes how food operates as a source of status and distinction for economic and cultural elites, indirectly maintaining and reproducing social inequality. While the first storyline insists that anybody can be a foodie, the second asks foodies to look in the mirror and think about their relative social and economic privilege. By simultaneously considering both of these stories, and studying how they operate in tension, a delicious sociology of food becomes available, perfect for teaching a broad range of cultural sociology courses.

Obama: Low Turnout By Black Voters Would Be ‘A Personal Insult’

President Barack Obama told a predominantly black audience on Saturday that if they want to protect everything the community has fought for over the past eight years, they can’t let voter turnout fall now that he’s off the ballot.

“I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election,” he said at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation conference. “You want to give me a good send-off? Go vote.”

It was Obama’s last speech as president at the annual event, and served as both a reflection on his presidency and a rallying cry for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who spoke earlier in the evening and who he said is the only candidate who can continue his legacy. Although Obama isn’t running for re-election, “Hope is on the ballot, and fear is on the ballot too,” he said.

The line about fear was one of many references to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, a man who tried for years to delegitimize Obama’s presidency by claiming he likely lied about being born in the United States. Trump finally said on Friday that he accepted that Obama was born in the U.S. ― while still lying about his own history as a birther and patting himself on the back for his role in urging the president to release a long-form birth certificate in 2011.

Obama kicked off his speech by feigning relief over Trump’s comments, as he did on Friday.

“There’s an extra spring in my step tonight. I don’t know about you guys, but I am so relieved that the whole birther thing is over,” Obama said. “I mean, ISIL, North Korea, poverty, climate change ― none of those things weighed on my mind like the validity of my birth certificate. And to think that with just 124 days to go, under the wire we got that resolved. That’s a boost for me in the home stretch.”

“In other breaking news, the world is round, not flat,” he added with a laugh.

Obama also mocked Trump’s claim that being a black person in the U.S. is so bad now that black voters should support the Republican because, in Trump’s own words, “What the hell do you have to lose?”

We do have challenges. But we’re not stupid.
President Barack Obama

Trump must have “missed that whole civics lesson about slavery and Jim Crow ― but we’ve got a museum for him to visit so he can tune in,” Obama said, referring to the new National Museum of African American History and Culture, which he said he’d toured earlier.

“[Trump] says we’ve got nothing left to lose, so we might as well support somebody who has fought against civil rights and fought against equality and who has shown no regard for working people for most of his life,” Obama said. “Well, we do have challenges. But we’re not stupid.”

“We know the progress we’ve made, despite the forces of opposition, despite the forces of discrimination, despite the politics of backlash,” he continued, “And we intend to keep fighting against those forces.”

Clinton’s speech was shorter and not as fiery, and was spent largely praising Obama and first lady Michelle Obama for what they’ve done for the country.

“I know I speak for not just everyone in this room but so many tens of millions of Americans: Mr. President, not only do we know you are an American, you’re a great American and you make us all proud to be Americans too,” Clinton said after receiving the organization’s Trailblazer Award.

She said she would not take for granted the vote of anyone in the room, and contrasted her vision with Trump’s.

“We need ideas, not insults. Real plans to help struggling Americans in communities that have been left out and left behind; not prejudice and paranoia,” Clinton said. “We can’t let Barack Obama’s legacy fall into the hands of someone who doesn’t understand that ― whose dangerous and divisive vision for our country will drag us backwards. Instead, we need to come together.”

The 6 Secrets of Self-Control

2016-09-09-1473458162-6578277-TheSixSecretsofSelfControlHP.jpg

What is it about self-control that makes it so difficult to rely on? Self-control is a skill we all possess (honest); yet we tend to give ourselves little credit for it. Self-control is so fleeting for most that when Martin Seligman and his colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania surveyed two million people and asked them to rank order their strengths in 24 different skills, self-control ended up in the very bottom slot.


Watch Tommy Boy Explain His Struggles With Self-Control

When it comes to self-control, it is so easy to focus on our failures that our successes tend to pale in comparison. And why shouldn’t they? Self-control is an effort that’s intended to help achieve a goal. Failing to control yourself is just that–a failure. If you’re trying to avoid digging into that bag of chips after dinner because you want to lose a few pounds and you succeed Monday and Tuesday nights only to succumb to temptation on Wednesday by eating four servings’ worth of the empty calories, your failure outweighs your success. You’ve taken two steps forward and four steps back.

With this success/failure dichotomy in mind, I give you six strategies for self-control. Some are obvious, others counter-intuitive, but all will help you eliminate those pesky failures and ensure your efforts to boost your willpower are successful enough to keep you headed in the right direction for achieving your goals.

Self-Control Secret #1 – Meditate

Meditation actually trains your brain to become a self-control machine. Even simple techniques like mindfulness, which involves taking as little as five minutes a day to focus on nothing more than your breathing and your senses, improves your self-awareness and your brain’s ability to resist destructive impulses. Buddhist monks appear calm and in control for a reason.

Self-Control Secret #2 – Eat

File this one in the counter-intuitive category, especially if you’re having trouble controlling your eating. Your brain burns heavily into your stores of glucose when attempting to exert self-control. If your blood sugar is low, you are far more likely to succumb to destructive impulses. Sugary foods spike your sugar levels quickly and leave you drained and vulnerable shortly thereafter. Eating something that provides a slow burn for your body, such as whole grain rice or meat, will give you a longer window of self-control. So, if you’re having trouble keeping yourself out of the company candy bin when you’re hungry, make sure you eat something else if you want to have a fighting chance.

Self-Control Secret #3 – Exercise

Getting your body moving for as little as 10 minutes releases GABA, a neurotransmitter that makes your brain feel soothed and keeps you in control of your impulses. If you’re having trouble resisting the impulse to walk over to the office next door to let somebody have it, just keep on walking. You should have the impulse under control by the time you get back.

Self-Control Secret #4 – Sleep

When you are tired, your brain cells’ ability to absorb glucose is highly diminished. As I explained in Secret #2, your brain’s ability to control impulses is nil without glucose. What’s worse, without enough sleep you are more likely to crave sugary snacks to compensate for low glucose levels. So, if you’re trying to exert self-control over your eating, getting a good night’s sleep–every night–is one of the best moves you can make.

Self-Control Secret #5 – Ride the Wave

Desire has a strong tendency to ebb and flow like the tide. When the impulse you need to control is strong, waiting out this wave of desire is usually enough to keep yourself in control. The rule of thumb here is to wait at least 10 minutes before succumbing to temptation. You’ll often find that the great wave of desire is now little more than a ripple that you have the power to step right over.

Self-Control Secret #6 – Forgive Yourself

A vicious cycle of failing to control oneself followed by feeling intense self-hatred and disgust is common in attempts at self-control. These emotions typically lead to over-indulging in the offending behavior. When you slip up, it is critical that you forgive yourself and move on. Don’t ignore how the mistake makes you feel; just don’t wallow in it. Instead, shift your attention to what you’re going to do to improve yourself in the future.

Putting These Strategies to Work

The important thing to remember is you have to give these strategies the opportunity to work. This means recognizing the moments where you are struggling with self-control and, rather than giving in to impulse, taking a look at the Six Secrets and giving them a go before you give in.

Foot Drop

What is foot drop?
Foot drop is the inability to raise the front part of the foot due to weakness or paralysis of the tibialis anterior muscle that lifts the foot (Figure 1). A common symptom of foot drop is a high steppage gait, often characterized by raising the thigh up in an exaggerated fashion while walking. When a person with foot drop walks, the foot slaps down onto the floor.

2016-09-15-1473960001-2882617-foot1.PNG

Foot drop usually results from an injury to the peroneal nerve which is susceptible to injury at any point of its course. The peroneal nerve begins from the L4, L5, S1 and S2 nerve roots and joins the tibial nerve to form the sciatic nerve (Figure 2). The sciatic nerve starts in the lower back and runs through the buttock and lower limb.


2016-09-15-1473964839-1700154-foot2.PNG

In the lower thigh, just above the back of the knee, the sciatic nerve divides into two nerves, the tibial and peroneal nerves, which innervate different parts of the lower leg (Figure 3). The common peroneal nerve then travels anterior around the fibular neck, dividing into superficial and deep peroneal nerves. The deep peroneal nerve gives innervation to the tibialis anterior muscle of the lower leg, which is responsible for dorsiflexion of the ankle (Figure 4).

2016-09-15-1473964901-5244603-Foot4.PNG

Conditions Causing Foot Drop (Figure 5):
A herniated disc compressing the L5 nerve root may cause foot drop. Another cause of foot drop can be a lumbosacral plexus injury, pelvic fracture. Foot drop may also be caused by a sciatic nerve injury, like a hip dislocation. The common peroneal division of the sciatic nerve is commonly injured during fracture dislocation injuries involving the hip. An injury to the knee, such as a knee dislocation may also cause foot drop. In the event of a knee dislocation, it is important to check for common peroneal nerve and popliteal artery injury. In established compartment syndrome, foot drop is a late finding. Irreversible muscle and nerve ischemia occurs in patients if fasciotomy is not performed. Fasciotomy should be done early. Four hours of ischemia may be tolerated but by eight hours, the damage is often irreversible.

2016-09-15-1473964936-7620194-foot5.PNG

Treatment of Peroneal Nerve Injury/Foot Drop:
If a disc herniation in the low back is impinging on the nerve and causing symptoms of foot drop, then the herniated disc should be treated or removed. EMG and nerve studies should be done for the patient. Recovery may take one year to 18 months. The big toe will be the last to recover. If recovery is not achieved, explore the nerve for repair, graft or tendon transfer.

It Looks Like Donald Trump Is Done Talking About Birther Stuff

MIAMI ― On Friday evening, Donald Trump talked about how terrible American inner cities are; he talked about how many jobs his energy plan would produce; he talked about how hard he campaigns.

What he didn’t talk about was his statement earlier that day declaring ― after five years of falsely claiming otherwise ― that President Barack Obama was born in the United States.

Trump did not allude to the issue at all in 45 minutes of remarks in a state with large African-American and Latino populations. People in both groups have found his leadership in the “birther” movement offensive because it tried to delegitimize the nation’s first black president.

While Trump’s aides and surrogates attempted Friday to blame birtherism on Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, Florida Republican Party chairman Blaise Ingoglia said he considers the matter closed.

“Mr. Trump came out and made that statement. That should put it to bed,” Ingoglia said.

Whether minority voters agree with him enough that they help Trump carry the state in November remains to be seen. The GOP nominee has polled exceptionally poorly with both African-American and Latino voters nationally, although the large percentage of Republican-leaning Cuban-American voters in Florida has given him relatively stronger support among Hispanics there than in other key swing states.

At the Miami rally, Trump largely gave what’s become his standard stump speech of late, adding a line promising to help the people of Cuba stand up to their communist leaders and boasting about his Florida golf courses.

“I have a lot of employees, and I pay them a lot of money. And by the way, a lot of African-American employees, a lot of Hispanic employees ― a lot. And they’re very happy,” Trump said. “They like Donald Trump.”

He visited a community center in the city’s Little Haiti neighborhood prior to arriving at the downtown James Knight Center auditorium, which was filled to its 5,500-person capacity with his supporters.

American Men Are Pretty Happy With Their Penises

2016-09-16-1474064741-45703-14austinpowers.w710.h473.2x.jpg

By Jesse Singal

For understandable reasons, society’s conversation about body satisfaction tends to focus on women. Women, it can safely be argued, face a lot more social pressure to look good all the time, to feel ashamed of their bodies, and to harp on minor imperfections.

Men aren’t immune from all that, though. And one particularly painful area where it manifests, according to sexual health researchers, is in insecurity about their penises. This can lead to some bad outcomes. As a team led by Thomas Gaither, a urologist at the University of California, San Francisco, point out in a new study in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, “Case reports have shown men undergo risky procedures, such as silicon injections, to lengthen their penis and increase penile girth.” In addition, “Genital piercings, silicone injection, and subcutaneous implant are increasingly common and are associated with numerous complications.”

Related: Here Are Your Penis Beauty Standards

Gaither and his colleagues wanted to better understand how men view their penises, so they conducted what they say is the first nationally representative survey using a newly developed scale called the Index of Male Genital Image, or IMGI. It consists of 14 statements ranked on a score of 1-7 involving penis length, girth, and so on — a score of 1-3 is coded as “dissatisfied,” while 4-7 is coded as satisfied. They got results from 3,996 men, the sample drawn from 18-to-65-year-olds who weren’t institutionalized.

Comparing those who landed in the “satisfied” (greater than 4.0) versus “unsatisfied” (4.0 or lower) buckets when the scores were averaged, the researchers didn’t find any statistically significant differences in penile satisfaction when it came to age, “race, marital status, education, location, income, or sexual partners.” Penile (dis)satisfaction appears to be pretty much constant across these categories.

Overall:

A total of 3433 (85.9%) reported an average greater than 4 per item on the IMGI and thus were classified as satisfied. Men reported highest satisfaction with the shape of their glans (64%), followed by circumcision status (62%), girth of erect penis (61%), texture of skin (60%), and size of testicles (59%). Men reported dissatisfaction with the size of their flaccid penis (27 %), length of erect penis (19%), girth of erect penis (15%), amount of pubic hair (14%), and amount of semen (12%). Men reported neutrality with the scent of their genitals (44%), genital veins (43%), location of urethra (42%), color of genitals (40%), and amount of pubic hair (36%). Of note, those who were extremely dissatisfied (score of 1 or 2) reported dissatisfaction with their flaccid penis (10.0%), length of erect penis (5.7 %), and girth of erect penis (4.5%).

There were some decent-size differences in terms of the sexual experiences of men who were satisfied versus dissatisfied with their penises. Those who were satisfied were less likely to be sexually active (73.5 percent versus 86.3 percent), and engaged in less daily and weekly sexual activity. There were also slight but statistically significant differences in the percentage of dissatisfied versus satisfied men who reported having had vaginal or receptive oral sex (85.2 percent versus 89.5 percent, and 61 percent versus 66.2 percent). The obvious question here is what’s causing what: To what extent are men who are dissatisfied with their penises less likely to seek out sex as a result of their insecurity? A correlational self-report study can’t answer that, nor can it answer whether these mens’ likes and dislikes were shared by their sexual partners.

Related: Why Is No One Interested in Vagina Size?

It’s interesting that a sizable minority of men reported dissatisfaction with their testicle size or glans shape. On the one hand, in a survey like this you are explicitly asking about certain features, so these responses don’t mean that they are wandering around obsessing over this stuff. (It would be another thing entirely if you asked men to generate an open-ended list of body features they didn’t like and these kept popping up.) But on the other: It’s an interesting comparison to what women go through, because it highlights the fact that at least some of the things both men and women worry about probably aren’t, in fact, of much import to anyone else. If you’re a guy, the odds that a partner is going to care that much about the size of your testicles or the “shape of your glans” — that’s something I can honestly say I had never even thought about before reading this article, and which the researchers note “has little anatomic variability” — are probably pretty low.

More broadly, the main takeaway, as a first-pass attempt at understanding this stuff, is that men mostly feel pretty happy with their penises. Which can maybe explain the epidemic of unsolicited photos.
